Dextrose by HSN Raw is a type of carbohydrate of high glycemic index that produces an immediate energy supply. It is perfect to take in the most demanding moments like the post-workout period.
Dextrose has a high glycemic index, which provokes a large insulin release (insulin peak) which will be strategically used in the previously mentioned moments. Insulin is a powerful anabolic hormone, which helps to introduce the nutrients circulating in the bloodstream into the cell.
Because of this feature, dextrose is usually combined with other elements such as creatine, BCAA's and even protein, resulting in truly remarkable results when the goal is building muscle mass.
However, dextrose can also be useful for those who keep a high sports performance and require an energy shot in order to refill their deposits quickly.
Dextrose is a form of glucose derived from starches, and it is often used, in the sports world, as an energy source to load glycogen deposits and keep insulin levels high in certain moments, such as the peri-workout:
- Just before training
- During training
- Right after training
We can prepare a beverage and start drinking it just before the workout session, and carry on with it during training. With this combination, we provide BCAAs that will contribute to this regeneration, apart from stimulating the synthesis of proteins; Along with a constant maintenance of the energy supply of rapid absorption through Dextrose.
Combining a powder protein or Whey Protein with Dextrose is a great option to recharge our body with essential nutrients with which to begin the recovery process. It is recommended that we prepare a shake by adding in a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio (favoring the carbohydrates):
- 25g of Whey Protein
- 25-50g of Dextrose
One of the most common uses of dextrose is to combine it with creatine to enhance the absorption of the later. By generating an insulin spike, this hormone will cause nutrients that travel through the blood to be introduced into the muscle cell. In this situation, if we include creatine at the same time, we can induce its maximum usage.
We can combine in the same post-workout shake, the 3 supplements: Whey Protein Creatine Dextrose
- Athletes looking to keep normal blood sugar levels during prolonged exercise, delaying fatigue, and maintaining performance.
- Ideal to take after training with a protein shake, since dextrose stimulates the insulin release, replenishes spent glycogen and enhances protein synthesis.

Good results when combined
Good energy support for long workouts since it helps to maintain the pace throughout the whole session, I like to combine it with amylopectin as well to enhance its effects
It barely has any flavor and dissolves really nicely, which is perfect if you want to mix it with something else. It makes a good post-workout shake that is easy to digest.
Provides a great recovery
I always use it for my post-workout to make sure that my muscles get all the nutrients they need and to get an excellent recovery
